OZARK, Ala. (WTVY) --

Out of 900 programs, Enterprise State Community College’s mechatronics program has been chosen for their success.

“We were awarded September’s NC3 school on the rise and NC3 is a certification body,” said Mechatronics Instructor and Program Manager Aubri Hanson. “We participate in their certification program every year.”

The growth of the program over the past year was a key factor, for hundreds of certificates to be received by students.

“There is no better training for these students than on the job training and if they can correlate what they’re learning in the classroom with something they’re actually going to do in a job, it helps them find their career that much more easily,” Hanson added.

Whether it is an internship, apprenticeship or full-time job, all of Hanson’s students are receiving on the job training.

“It will be my first like real job and it will contain somethings of this class engineering of course and mapping out how things may work, and I’m really interested into getting into that.” Said Mechatronics student Ryan Turner.

Students who also recognize the impact the course has.

“I don’t think I ever learned anything to this extent within a whole semester and I’ve been here a month and a half, so it’s just been unbelievable how much I’ve learned,” Turner finished.

Ryan starts his internship with Lockheed Martin next week.
